Integrated Solutions Health Network announces new chief clinical integration officer

6/17/2014


JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. – The goal at Integrated Solutions Health Network (ISHN) is simple: Create better care in the community.

Since forming CrestPoint Health insurance company and AnewCare Collaborative - the region’s first community-based accountable care organization - back in 2012, ISHN has been making strides in building a better health care network.

To continue its success in doing that, the company requires a chief clinical integration officer (CCIO) whose expertise encompasses all aspects of care integration.

After an extensive search, ISHN is pleased to announce that Dr. Ian Bushell has been appointed CCIO for ISHN and president/CEO of AnewCare Collaborative.

With his dedication to medicine and expertise in population health management, Dr. Bushell will manage clinical integration initiatives while further developing relationships between physicians, hospitals, payers and the respective quality improvement programs.

“I’m very proud to be joining an organization that’s so focused on improving the health of the people in the region,” said Bushell. “I am passionate about improving the patient experience and dedicated to unlocking the full potential of provider partnerships to deliver high value health care.”

Bushell is joining ISHN with more than a decade of experience in leadership roles with major health care organizations. He also founded his own medical practice, which he successfully ran as the CEO.

“Ian brings a collaborative spirit and forward thinking qualities to the position,” said Rob Slattery, president and CEO of ISHN. “His experience will be vital to ISHN as we continue to work with our provider partners to improve health outcomes, consumer satisfaction and affordability. Ian’s leadership roles at health plans in Tennessee and Virginia will be invaluable to our organization at a time of rapidly changing market expectations.”

Dr. Bushell comes to Integrated Solutions Health Network from BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee, where he most recently served as the corporate medical director. Bushell began his career as a family physician and has continued patient care by volunteering his services to Crossroads Medical Mission in Bristol, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing primary medical care to the underserved residents of rural Northeast Tennessee and Southwest Virginia.   

Bushell graduated from Oglethorpe University, received his medical degree from Mercer University School of Medicine, and completed his residency in family medicine at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Dr. Bushell then went on to earn his Master of Health Sciences in clinical leadership at Duke University School of Medicine. 

Dr. Bushell is board certified by the American Board of Family Medicine, a certified physician executive by the American College of Physician Executives, and has active medical licenses in Tennessee, Virginia, North Carolina and Maryland.

He will begin his new role in July.
